I’d love to help you tell your story.
I’m a bilingual media director, nonprofit leader and author with 15 years’ experience in journalism leadership, content production, communications strategy, grantwriting and nonprofit management. I work with individuals and organizations so they can more effectively reach their target audiences and expand their impact.
In this fast-moving world where we have so few words to make our point, I love to get to know a client so I can distill your mission and goals into the most powerful possible language – whether you need it for your website, videos or strategic plans. I also offer services from copywriting and editing to Spanish-English translation. My years of managing teams and working under pressure mean I can deliver results quickly and thoroughly. Full Spanish proficiency.

Katherine’s writing has the perfect dose of sensitivity and sense of humor. She has a marvelous capacity for beautifying and distilling what you want to communicate, and making it attractive for readers. She’s a linguistic artist – highly recommended! –Melania Cubero, Founder, Unplug Costa Rica
Katherine is a passionate writer who can capture the feeling and mood of what she is writing about instantly. She cares about people and their projects and lives; she wants to understand where they are coming from and what they want to convey. She is quick, professional and a pleasure to work with. I really like how she understands culture and language here in Costa Rica. She is gifted and her writing will make you smile. We recommend her 100%. –Donald Varela, Founder, Tapir Valley Nature Reserve
Katherine really took time to understand what our project was about and how we wanted to present ourselves, our business, and our brand. She outlined with us the goals of the site, then explored key concepts and words with us. From here we were able to develop an elevator pitch and detailed descriptions. What I really liked was Katherine’s professionalism, expertise and attention to the details. She wanted to make sure that the copy was just right – right for the site and right for our brand. She reedited many times without complaints. Her communication was fast and efficient. She is organised and has a passion for writing. The process was smooth and Katherine met all deadlines easily. Don’t look any further. Working with Katherine was a very positive experience. We feel honoured we had the opportunity to engage and work with such a talented writer and editor. –Pip Kelly, Co-Owner, Casitas Tenorio B&B
Katherine worked hand-in-hand with me directing the Costa Rica Multilingüe Foundation. Her amazing ability to synthetize concepts and ideals with words was a key factor for the success we had with the program. Her work was invaluable in terms of establishing diverse public-private partnerships and for fundraising purposes, which were the key to achieving goals. As the Director of Costa Rica Rica Multilingüe, I would not hesitate to recommend her work due to the extremely high quality of the results and her willingness and commitment to add value to any organization. –Marta Blanco, Co-Founder, Costa Rica Multilingüe Foundation
